Dash camera footage from Michigan State Police shows a state representative name-dropping Gov. Gretchen Whitmer while he was getting arrested after allegedly driving under the influence.
Rep. Jewell Jones, 26, was arrested on April 6 for driving while drunk, resisting arrest, and possession of a firearm while intoxicated, though the video was only recently released. During the arrest footage, he can be heard refusing officers’ orders and referring to both the governor and Col. Joseph Gasper, the director of the Michigan State Police.
“I’m going to tell Gretchen [Whitmer],” Jones said. “You’re f—ing up. I’m going to get you on f—ing desk duty, bro.”
